Joyce Wang Studio

Specializing in luxury hospitality and residential design, Joyce Wang’s eponymous studio has earned international acclaim and an impressive global portfolio in just a few short years.

Wang’s architectural approach, interdisciplinary academic pedigree, and cinematic inspirations give her award-winning projects a sense of drama that captivates and engage audiences. Some of her recent notable commissions include Mott 32, AMMO Restaurant & Bar in the Asia Society Hong Kong Center and the cabana rooms at the legendary Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles. 

“We’ve had the good fortune to work on projects that have a heritage value, whether it be the brand or the site,” explains Joyce. “This has allowed us to create environments that reinvent traditions and craft narratives that beg the audience to question and interpret the surroundings.” 

A common string ties together the large range of genres of spaces designed by Joyce: They represent high-end spatial experiences that are one of a kind - composed of fully custom designed fixtures and detailing, sought-after limited edition antique pieces and artisanal crafts carefully sourced from all over the world. 

Wang’s appreciation of various art forms and crafts is tied to her studies at the Royal College of Art, London. There, not only was she exposed to textiles, product design, but gained an appreciation for film-making, jewelry-making and the fashion industry. Industries which provide constant inspiration and talking points in her work. Her work is imbued with a deft expression of materiality evident in the intricate bespoke details of the furniture and fittings she designs for her spaces.

A symbol of Asia’s growing prominence in art and design, Wang has been a sought-after speaker at industry events like Maison & Objet Fair and World Interior Festival in Singapore and the Business of Design Week (BODW) in Hong Kong. In addition to her design practice, Wang is developing her own custom furniture and lighting collection.  Current commissions include a hotel in Bangkok, and residential projects in Los Angeles and Shanghai.
